Straight Links plus Permalink button next to post


Question

Posted · Report post

Hello and thank you for your help with these questions.

 

I have two questions, but they are tied to one another so I decided to post them together.

 

I would like to replicate the way the following website has set up their posts:

 

http://www.loopinsight.com

 

1. Straight Link to 3rd party sites - As you can see, if they are linking to a 3rd party article, they credit the article and when you click on the post title it takes you straight to an outside website [straight link], and not to the loopinsight.com post permalink.  

 

I would like to set up my posts this way.  If I am writing my own content post, when visitors click on the title they should be taken to the post's permalink.  However, if I am linking to a 3rd party site post that I found interesting, when visitors click the title it should take them straight to that 3rd party site.

 

 

2. Permalink Button - I would like to recreate the little loop besides every post [with my own button of course].  This little loop button takes you the post's permalink [http://www.loopinsight.com/...].  

 

I would like to display a corresponding "Permalink" button next to each of my posts.

 

 

 

Thank you so much for your help.

Hi,

 

1. By default the Wordpress loop will only link to internal posts, if you wish to have your post titles link to an external source, you will need to ask this question on the Wordpress forums.

 

2. To recreate the anchor icon that appears next to your posts title, will require custom CSS.

 

Read this post, should assist you - http://www.codeitpretty.com/2013/04/add-icon-to-blog-post-titles-with-css.html

 

However, please be aware that the code provided may not actually work and you will need to use your browser inspection tools to find the correct classes.

Thank you very much for your reply to both of my questions, and for the link to how I can create the anchor icon.

I will follow up on question #1 on the WordPress forum. 

 

Have a great day!
